4th VSimRTI Workshop 2014: Engineering Smart Connected Mobility

News from Mar. 25, 2014

Fraunhofer FOKUS invites on 9 May to the 4th VSimRTI Workshop2014 in Berlin, Germany. VSimRTI is a comprehensive simulation framework for the assessment of new solutions for Intelligent Transportation Systems. This practical workshop provides tutorials to learn how new Smart Mobility solutions can be developed and an assessment can be done. All workshop participants get a ready-to-use simulation environment for their laptops to carry out all tutorials themselves.
9 May 2014, 10:00 - 17:00, Fraunhofer Forum, Berlin.

Tutorial: Use simulation for an easier and more efficient assessment of new mobility solutions
  • Create sophisticated simulation scenarios
  • Set-up simulation environment and mobile applications
  • Become familiar with comfortable assessment tools

Description
This practical workshop provides tutorials to learn how new Smart Mobility solutions can be developed and an assessment can be done. All workshop participants get a ready-to-use simulation environment for their laptops to carry out all tutorials themselves. In the first tutorial, sophisticated simulation scenarios will be created. Then, the participants learn to set-up simulations and to develop own mobile applications. In the third part, the participants will become familiar with comfortable assessment tools and learn how they can analyse their simulation results.

New smart connected applications help to increase today's mobility: Traffic participants have the opportunity to exchange a huge amount of information via cellular and Vehicle-2-X networks. Smartphone and in-vehicle apps use the received information to suggest optimized travel routes and to increase safety of all traffic participants.

VSimRTI is a comprehensive simulation framework for the assessment of new solutions for Intelligent Transportation Systems. Therefore, VSimRTI integrates various simulators responsible for vehicular traffic, communication via cellular and Vehicle-2-X networks, smartphone and in-vehicle applications, and electric mobility.

Please bring your laptop with you. We provide you with a free 6-month VSimRTI licence.
